The flow rate being calculated by calibrating the rotameter. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND The head loss associated with flow through any fitting in a pipeline can be expressed in the form: hl = k v2/2g where hl = head loss k = friction factor v = velocity in Ø13.2 to a Ø13.6 pipe line (v2) g = gravitational acceleration Fig.6 in a pipe line. (As in MFE020 Fluid Mechanics II Lab 1) . The Velocity head is calculated by firstly determining the mean velocity of the flow by dividing the flow rate by the cross-sectional area of the pipe downstream of the contraction. 1: Schematic Diagram of the Sudden contraction Inverted air-filled manometer A H 1 B H 2 Flow 1 Sudden Contraction 2 The k-factor for the fitting can be determined calculating the slope of the graph found when plotting the Head Loss vs Velocity Head. 2.1. AIM OF THE LABORATORY EXPERIMENT To determine the friction factor (k-factor) of a sudden contraction from a Ø26.

Consider the manometer fitted across the contraction. 3: Plug in the power lead of the test bench and start the pump. 10: Repeat steps 8 and 9 until maximum flow is reached. 9: Increase the flow slightly. pump.gH2 (P1 – P2) / g = H1 – H2 3.g H1 = P2 . 4: Open the valve on the test bench to maximum 5: Open the valve on the piping apparatus to maximum 6: Close valve on the piping apparatus and check that the manometer attached to the sudden contraction is free of bubbles.1 3. ie PA = P B therefore where P1 = PA + g H1 P1 . The pressure at point A is equal to the pressure at B (since the inverted manometer is filled with air). apply Bernoulli’s Law to the sudden contraction Z1 + p1/g + v21 /2g = Z2 + p2/g + v22/2g + hl therefore hl = (v21 – v22)/2g + (P1 – P2) / g The velocities are calculated as explained above. 8: Note the level of the float in the rotameter and the levels in the manometer limbs.To determine the Head Loss (hl). . level and about halfway on the scale. control-valve and catchment tank with level sight-glass.

CONCLUSIONS It is evident that with such an experimental procedure. And as such it is clear that there is room for improvement regarding the means or procedure to attain a k-factor of a pipe . Using a stop watch to measure water flow and manually or visually recording results provide ample opportunities for error. These include things such as inaccurate recordings during experimentation. DISCUSSION OF RESULTS After following the experimental procedures and doing the required calculation it was possible to arrive at a suitably accurate friction factor for a sudden contraction. Due to the aforementioned factors the recorded k. RESULTS Figure 2: Head loss vs Velocity Head 6. faulty calculations and incorrect visual representation of the results. Although the K-factor determined is adequate. there are however many possible reasons for error.5. for any given pipe configuration. 8. when we considering the method used to determine it. there are numerous possible causes for errors to occur in the pursuit of obtaining a friction factor.factor for this particular pipe contraction is pertinent. These sources of error are prevalent as human limitations are a strong factor.
